Review: Wet N Wild Mega Eyes Trio

I mentioned in my WNW haul post that these trios have already been discontinued. However, thanks to eBay, I was able to get them. I got mine in Egyptian Sands and Venetian Violets.


The packaging is ok. I mean, it looks a li'l flimsy but the shadows don't fall off the case so I don't mind the packaging very much. Besides, these palettes are really inexpensive so I didn't expect high-end packaging in the first place. Each palette comes with a pop-out mirror and a tiny sponge tip applicator which I don't use.


Comes with a pop-out mirror
These are my first Wet N Wild e/s and I am loving them so far!

L-R: Egyptian Sands, Venetian Violets
Here are the swatches.

No primer applied. T-B: Without flash/natural lighting,
With flash/indoor lighting
Egyptian Sands (ES):
  • browbone color - cream
  • crease color - peach-gold
  • eyelid color - bronze
Venetian Violets (VV): 
  • browbone color - cool off-white/super pale purple
  • crease color -  medium violet
  • eyelid color - pale purple/lilac. 
These shadows have a satin finish which I like. I enjoyed swatching them because they are really soft to touch and can be blended easily. The shadows in ES are all well-pigmented; those in VV are less pigmented. I also noticed that the VV highlight color is a bit sheer compared to the others.

All in all, I like these palettes - the texture and the pigmentation (especially with Egyptian Sands) and the price! I got these online for 99.75 Php each. As I've said, Mega Eyes Trios have already been discontinued but there are lots of resellers out there. And there are six color themes to choose from.

  1. Thank goodness for Ebay when it comes to discontinued items, right? :) The brush is SO tiny! That is the smallest brush I've ever seen :p

  2. Thanks for the review! I saw this on ebay too and was wondering if the formulation is the same as their coloricon ones. I plan on buying the coloricon trios :)
